When you get here don't forget to go to the newcomer's briefing at the ACS building. They offer free daycare and give out great information and important telephone numbers.

School is usually out in May here too, but we had some snow days to make up. Not to mention the week they missed due to ice storm knocking out power for a week. So, im assuming it will be june.

I totally understand that. We got Sam(our Lab)when she was 7 weeks old and I was also pregnant with our 4 yr old. She watches out for the 2 little ones when I am busy and lets me know when they are doing something they aren't supposed to. So do you have a move date yet?

You sound just like me. Our Lab is part of the family and not just a dog or just a pet. When we have moved with her we pack her bag also.

Jennifer,
Just don't tell the post vet that your dog is part chow(unless it is obvious) because picerne doesn't check. They just need the vet requirements.

I dont know. Like I said we moved here 7 years ago before Picerne took over and before they put out that policy on post.

I have a rottweiler. Which is also considered aggresive. But let me tell you she is the biggest baby. I always say someone could break into our house and take everything as long as they were petting her. She wouldnt care. We have an insurance policy on her that is required. We have been here for 7 years so we are grandfathered in. So we didnt have to worry about all that stuff. We also have 2 cats. Unfortunately most bases are going to this kind of policy for pets. Which sucks. It seems worse here because theres not much living off post. Either the homes are too expensive or they are nasty.
Hopefully you can get things worked out.

my husband talked to someone in the housing department, and they told him the pet policy. He was told only 2 pets and no chows snce they are considered aggressive. THis sucks, because we have 2 cats that i've have for years plus we have a dog. The dog s part chow part retriever and is in no way aggressive. She's the best dog we could ever hope for. Im really upset over this because i dont want to get rid of any of my pets. has anyone else had issues lke this?

I am also at Ft. Polk. 1st always go to Walmart because I can almost guarantee the PX doesn't have it. Summers are hot and humid. Winters are nice though. It does get cold here but not to bad.

Hi Jennifer,
My name is Cheryl and we are currently stationed at Ft Polk. First Wal-mart will become your best friend because if the PX or the Commissary doesn't have it they do. Be prepared to drive 45 minutes to the closest shopping mall. Target is there also. A Bed Bath and Beyond just opened up. Housing is fine and the base hospital is ok also. Any other questions just shout.
